Predicting Spectral Properties of DLA Galaxies


Comparison of our chemically consistent models for spiral galaxies with observed DLA abundances shows that at high redshift DLA galaxies may well be the progenitors of normal spiral disks of all types from Sa through Sd. Towards lower redshifts z ≤ 1.5 however, early type spirals drop out of DLA samples due to low gas or/and high dust content. We use the… (More)
